Sarah P’s comments: Here is a link to an excellent article which librarian Cate Carlyle recently brought to my intention. Melanie succinctly defines the modern concept of ‘international librarianship’ which is one of shared practice rather than specific location, and which this blog tries to reflect.
‘If we aim to practice a form of international librarianship that is reciprocal, action-oriented, and focused on advancing our shared profession, while also applying a philosophical lens of critical librarianship, we can move our activities beyond short-term charity work or descriptive studies into work that can have an influential and long-lasting impact.’ – Melanie Sellar
